Civic Auditorium, Honolulu, HI ~ review
Ah, what a tantalizing glimpse. Or is it pretty much the whole show? That seems unlikely. but there's no denying the good humor, happy-vibe energy of this 55-minute snippet. And such great sound!

Lead vocals are evenly distributed -- Jerry, Pig, And Bobby each get two, and there are two ensemble vocal tunes. Good Lovin is cut, but not until they're riffing their way out of the jam anyhow -- seems we get the best part. And a 1970 Dancin follows, so who cares?

I wondered why I hadn't marked any songs as highlights, and it's because there aren't any really -- just the fact of it is a sort of highlight, but nothing stands out. Still, it puts a smile on my face.

Not a full meal in itself, but certainly a great appetizer -- for example, for 1-23-70, which DOES have great highlights: Good Lovin & a fiery Other One come to mind. And I just love hearing Pigpen heckle Bobby's yellow dog story :-)
